Weʼre raising £4,200 to replace a pensioners roof after a neighbours builder caused serious damage
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We have set this page up, to help raise much needed money to fix our mother’s roof. Our mum is an amazing woman who has dedicated her life to helping vulnerable children be placed into safe homes, throughout her long career as a social worker. This is now your opportunity to help her make her own house safe to live in.
She is a caring woman who would do anything for anyone but she has been put into this unfortunate living situation by a next door neighbour’s cowboy builder.
The builder accessed her roof, whilst completing a new roof for her neighbour, and has caused severe damage causing part of the roof to collapse and water pour through. We have had a lot of sustained heavy rain recently and the roof has collapsed further. It is currently propped up.
The builder has refused to respond to our requests to fix the roof and our mother, a retired public servant, does not have sufficient funds to pay for repair (approximately, $5,300/£4,200). We are currently fundraising the money to pay for the roof to be fixed.
We would like to get the roof fixed, as soon as possible, but definitely before the winter comes. The electrical cables and joists are now exposed after being damaged by the incoming water (when it rains).
Any financial assistance would be much appreciated.
